I would like to note that everything is at factory clock speeds, so no OC over here.. yet.
Anyways.. Here is my question.
I play a wide variety of games, and I should be able to play pretty much anything and everything, if not maxed out, very close.
I've been playing Fallout New Vegas again lately because I finally picked it up on PC for super cheap. I WAS running NV at maxed out settings, literally everything as high as it can go; with literally no hiccups what so ever.
So a few days later and I decide I want to get into the world of mods for the game..
So, I dl and install the Nexus Mod Manager(NMM), some of the mods I was looking at required the 4GB New Vegas Script Extender(NVSE). I dl NVSE and put the correct files in the data folder where they are supposed to go.
Everything should work like normal persay? Well, I guess I was wrong.
Now at maxed out settings, I get extremely frequent hiccups. Nothing that makes the game unplayable by any means, but it gets extremely annoying. I've tried to remedy this by removing the files.. even lowering the graphic settings and it's still there.
I even went to far as to literally delete all of NMM and the mods, as well as the entire root folder for Fallout New Vegas and to re install it(Already did this). So, I literally had no traces of New Vegas, The Mod Manager, or mods present when I reinstalled.
Even with a brand new install, it still persists and It's getting a little discouraging.
Sorry for the ridiculously long post, but I figured the more information the better.
